    Let's curate a video gallery of :inavoid: :smokin: ice revue and exhibition skating voids.

    The parameters are loose - any time any place, from historical to hysterical, from Eva Pawlik to Eman to some unknown yet :smokin: OES.

    Selections could be from Ice revues, the cinema, Russian television, or even a particularly voidy program from a local ice show.

    As it is show skating, (if possible) good quality picture and sound is desired. Featured skater IDs, show date, and a little bit of background information would be helpful, although not mandatory.

    Anyway, Here We Go! - have at it and post some of your favorites. I'll post a few right now to get started, and will soon select some :glamor: voids of times past from the :sekret: Central European figure skating vaults. ;)

    First off, big thanks to everyone involved, from the video capturers, posting scavengers - and of course the skaters, choreographers, directors, music arrangers, costumers, etc. who provided the voids in the first place. :encore:

    I guess it is almost obligatory to start with a Sonja Henie video, being that she was an inspiration to so many skaters past and present. Here is an HD version of a classic, the Finale of Sun Valley Serenade (1941)

    One of my all-time favorites is the extremely talented and voidy British skater Belita . These clips are from the film Suspense (1946) Part 1 and Part 2 . Additionally, a very interesting, candid (and cheeky) Belita interview (circa 1970s)

    Enjoy...

    Voidy show skating = Toller Cranston for me. Here's his fabulous firebird at MSG in 1983. So many more, especially his specials such as The Magic Planets and Strawberry Ice. I mean you just can't outvoid that!!! :inavoid: :cheer: :inavoid:

    What does voidy mean?

    Cheesy? Rare? Forgotten? Tacky? Awful?

    Its strictly a message board term. I've never heard a skater say it. It stems from an embarrassing Christopher Dean quote. Pretty funny actually. It has come to represent the Avante-Garde skaters. In my book, the only ones that count. ;)

    Anyway, my picks are Allen Schramm, Gary Beacom, and the Duchesnays.

    Let's add this example:

    As Tybalt - Toller Cranston --" Romeo and Juliet on Ice" - 1982
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=032DwlgcNHo

    For those of you who don't know, he is the "villian" in "Strawberry Ice"; and truly terrifying.

    Thanks! :rockstar: I was saving this spot for you.;)

    No argument from me, in my mind Toller is most definitely the King of Voids. :inavoid:

    I'm still waiting for someone in skating, whether it be a skater or a commentator, to break the seal on using "voidy".

    "Flutz" made it to mainstream skating vocabulary, so why not? :inavoid:

    Maybe they shy away from it, because it ridicules one of their own (ie. Christopher Dean).

    Flutz was jargon used by skaters long before the internet.

    Now, as far as I know "lip" was created by fans online as a counterpart to flutz, and I have heard it used in local rinks since.

    It's still so painful to watch :D

    Does anybody know who Skate Guv and Sharps are? Are they FSUniverse users? When did this historic documentary viewing take place?

    sharps is SHARPIE--the board owner, then and now.

    SkateGuv is a former admin who no longer posts here.

    The viewing took place a long time ago.

    Kurt Browning said it on the air once during commentary. And Dick Button either said it or something else from FSU once--I don't remember that one as well.

    That one still makes me :rofl: :rofl: all these years later!

    Less laugh-worthy, but definitely in a void, I love this recent performance by Laetitia Hubert!

    Laetitia Hubert "Black Shoes" at Caesars Tribute II

    She's still doing her own thing (alas, without those huge :kickass: but inconsistent :wuzrobbed: triple jumps)!!

    It's the 1970s :) a time when bright lemon yellow was a considered neutral and the inspiration for the men of the HOI Corps de Balett was Ron Jeremy...

    Holiday on Ice (Blue Division) - In Rhythm Opening Number (1977)
    Once you get over all that glorious yellow and feathers and the too-tight pantsuits :shuffle: and the rather curious music juxtaposition, you'll see a nicely executed choreographic creation from Stephanie Andros. :summer:

    ...and something (just a little) more sane for you all, nice solo from :hat1: Ricky Inglesi at the end of the number:

    Holiday on Ice (Blue Division) - Spectrum Rock (1973)
    Featured skaters: Ricky Inglesi and Mitsuko Funakoshi

    I'm sure Ice Theatre of NY has some voidy stuff.
